How do I wash my earthing sheet underlay?
You can wash fitted or universal Better Earthing underlays in your washing machine on ‘hand-wash’ or ‘wool-wash’ setting with low spin cycle.
Use either warm water (30-40c) or cold water with presoaking beforehand in an Oxy soaker (see washing frequency for more). Wash with a detergent that does not contain bleach as this will degrade its antibacterial effectiveness over time. Choose an eco-friendly detergent like Earth Choice, Aware or Abode as they typically do not include bleach.
Every 3-6 months. This fabric is naturally antibacterial and remains hygienic between washes. Presoak every 2nd wash in an oxidiser soaker to prevent the build-up of body oils as they act as a barrier to good conductivity and can reduce earthing strength until washed out. Oxidising soakers are fine to use as our Stainless Steel filament does not oxidise.
This fabric has a natural crinkle and will pucker after washing. Hand-stretch the wet fabric by stretching the sides in opposite directions (stretching the sides apart). Line dry inside or outside. Do not tumble-dry. Do not dry clean. As this fabric is highly antibacterial, you can place it on the bed when it is not yet 100% dry (it will not develop mildew or other odours).
